Do you have a child who's wild about dinosaurs? You're in luck as that's the theme of the Summer Reading Clubs for kids this year. As an added bonus, the South Branch Library will offer a special summer series to teach kids all about dinosaurs. We're talking about PALEONTOLOGY SCHOOL of course.
What's Paleontology School? It's a 4-part summer series for kids of all ages where children's will share stories, show fossils, teach kids all about what paleontology is, and so much more. Youth who participate in all four sessions will even get the unique opportunity to become a Junior Paleontologist with the National Park Service. Not bad during a summer break from school.
As the summer progresses, everything will lead up to our Graduation Day on Friday, July 29. On this day, everyone is welcome to come out and participate in a full-blown Dinosaur Dig. Library staff will transform the entire South Branch Library into a dig site where youth will use all of their knowledge and skills they've picked up over the summer and apply them on Graduation Day. Plus, we'll have tons of fun along the way.
Each session is FREE for youth to attend and we encourage everyone to come out and join us for the summer fun at your library. For additional information about this program, feel free to contact Alyssa Crow at 325-698-7565.
